Meet The Doctor

Congratulations on taking the first step towards becoming a healthier you!

You may think that you are already a very healthy person, but did you know that you may have nervous system interference at the level of your brainstem that is keeping your body from being able to function at its optimum level?

This interference is often present before any pain or symptoms arise. Upper cervical health care is a simple yet very specific way to get rid of this interference, which allows the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

I became an upper cervical doctor for one reason; it made sense. With the use of objective tests and specific X-Rays I can actually see any misalignment that may be present and exactly which direction and angle to make a specific correction.

By delivering a precise correction and restoring proper nervous system function, I expect each patient to respond, as their body’s innate desire to take care of itself is no longer impaired. I look forward to helping you restore your health!

Interview with Dr. Autumn

Brandon: How did you decide to become a chiropractor?

Dr. Autumn: “I played golf for UNLV and developed major spasms and mid-back pain during my junior year. I couldn’t workout or run, let alone swing a club. I went to the athletic trainer and I was given a bottle of Celebrex and hooked up to a TENS unit.

After several weeks without improvement, the trainer sent me out for an MRI, which came back as a negative study. No one could tell me the cause of this pain so they decided that I must have had a “weak back.”

Thankfully I had a family friend who was a chiropractor. I was pain free in a few days and could get back to living life, minus the Celebrex. I was a kinesiology major that had plans to go into sports medicine. Dr. Penna planted the seed in my head about attending chiropractic school, and I am thankful that seed grew!”

Brandon: How did you get interested in Upper Cervical Chiropractic?

Dr. Autumn: “To be totally honest….a boy. I only went to humor him during my second trimester at Cleveland. However, it only took one correction to convince me that upper cervical chiropractic was what I needed to be doing. It made so much sense to me. In fact it was the only thing that made sense to me, chiropractically speaking. Restoring proper nervous system function allows the body to heal. It’s that simple. All of the questions and doubts I had as to whether I made the right career choice were gone. I knew I’d be a Upper Cervical Warrior for life! I guess I should take the time to thank that boy…”
